Open May through September, we are a full - service family resort located just one mile south of Itasca State Park. We are nestled on the north shore of Little Mantrap Lake on a quiet peninsula. Little Mantrap is an excellent fishing lake and its crystal clear waters are a nature lover's delight. Listen to the loons call, watch the sun set with the eagles flying overhead and you'll soon see why so many families make Little Norway their personal vacation destination.

We stayed at LNR from Aug. 1-8, 2020. We have stayed here many times. My family and I LOVE it. It has Great cabins, great swim beach, Great location, Great staff and owners, and Great fishing. Ben, Stephanie, Chuck and Sissel are wonderful people.. I feel like they are part of my family. We look forward to visiting here for many years to come. If you are looking for a Great family resort, this is it. I can't wait to go back next year.

Property's Favorite Review
We have been coming to this resort from Denver for the past eight years. We just spent a week at the resort. The staff is friendly, the cabins are in excellent shape, there are many activities, and the lake is perfect (small so not too many other boats). I can't recommend this resort enough - it is worth the 1,000 mile drive for us. We have stayed at other resorts in the past but keep coming back here.

This was our first time staying at LNR and we loved it!. The cabins were clean and well furnished, especially the kitchen. Loved that there were LOTS of serving pieces and a great assortment of pots and pans. A mixer, even! The swimming beach was safe and shallow for our littles and the docks provided safe places for bobber fishing. The lower level of the lodge is a game room. Pretty outdated games but our littles didn't mind. We loved and appreciated the toddler play room adjacent to the arcade for our youngest grandchild. The staff were very friendly and responsive. A day trip to Itasca was excellent as it is just minutes away. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We love it here. Hospitable owners, good fishing, quiet property and really nice cabins. Plus a play area indoors and out, beach, hot tub indoors in a gazebo and soo much more! Newly remodeled also. We love the bear and deer cabins, which are 2 br 2ba.. and the property is also pet friendly, they have cable, and recently added WiFi through the whole resort!
